A good way to remove furniture scratches from wood is to rub a cracked walnut over them. Scratches are typically most noticeable on wood if the outer finish was removed, making the lighter interior visible. Walnuts naturally contain oil that can hide the appearance of scratches on finished wood furniture by darkening the exposed wood. Walnut oil is only contained on the inside of the nut; therefore, the shell must be removed before it can be effectively used for removing furniture scratches. After rubbing the walnut oil in the direction of the grain of the wood, touching it with your finger or a cloth can warm it and make it further penetrate the wood and hide the scratches.
